It's An Acceptional Journey

Blog Post created by jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 on Jul 7, 2019

I know if I chose to smoke, I would be a smoker again.           

 How do I know that?

      Because I would have had to give myself permission in order to smoke. Permission once given is a hard thing to put back in the box so, I probably wouldn't quit immediately.

Does it scare me to know I could be a smoker again?

I don't really think about it. (yes I know most do in the beginning)

Here's the thing. You can turn that urge into a positive reminder of where you're going by choosing to. You can laugh when you get a craving. There's nothing better than a laugh as a reminder you've quit smoking. I learned that on my third morning. I started laughing every time I got the thought of smoking. In a week I was thinking of laughing, not smoking.

      So no, it doesn't scare me to know I could be a smoker again because, I'd have to consider smoking before I gave myself permission to smoke.

 

I just don't consider smoking. That's my secret.

There is no fight if you don't allow yourself to consider smoking.

That choice will keep your quit.

 

Time is the healer
